Josh Grajczonek praised as Poole Pirates beat Swindon Robins
POOLE Pirates team manager Neil Middleditch has praised reserve rider Josh Grajczonek after the Dorset side kept their Elite League playoff bid alive with a win over the Swindon Robins.
Despite trailing after heat nine, Tomas Jonasson took a heat victory - sparking a resurgence from the Pirates.
Grajczonek maintained Poole's lead in heat eleven - finishing ahead of Edward Kennett. The Somerset rider helped the Pirates to a 5-1 win in heat 12 along with Greg Hancock - as Poole pulled away to take a 49-41 win.
"Josh typified the victory" said Middleditch. "He rode really well throughout and more than deserved the rider of the meeting award.

"The fact he never gave up in heat 14 was an example for any young rider in speedway. He snatched a third place on the line and as a result of that - the club banked all three league points."
Peterborough Panthers are only one point behind Poole after a comfortable win over Coventry Bees yesterday. Poole visit Swindon on Friday - ahead of their final home meeting at Wimborne Road next week.
The Pirates end their campaign at Belle Vue Aces on Monday 9 September.
